Most people say "what a great hamburger" they have had but I can say this burger was one of the best. I had a triple cheese burger with all the fixings and it was heaven. The waitress was exceptionally friendly and attentive and this lunch time break before flying out of Tampa to Washington, DC was perfect.

not sure if this is the coorect Iguana. I am looking for the one at the airport? Anyway it was OK super busy and we told the waitress about our upcoming flight but still a little slow and of course you are paying airport prices! No atmosphere really. Seating was tight too.

Stopped in for dinner. Took forever for a server to greet us at a table, even longer for the food to come out, which was absolutely sub-par , and 3 times longer to get our checks. Our server was the absolute worst server. The guy should probably find another job. We had a question about the tobacco onions, we asked... More

We stopped by here on the way to the airport after reading some positive feedback on TripAdvisor. The food was horrible, my friend ordered the Mojo Nachos, they were hard to look at, let alone Eat. Drenched is some white cheese sauce, at least that is what we suspected it was, just inedible. I ordered a blackened chicken ceaser, the... More

Great service, fun atmosphere (dinner time during a weekday with kids ) I liked that patrons had dogs with them while dining on the patio.

The blackened Mahi on my salad was amazing! Margaritas were average. Our server was sweet... I suggest making the staff wear aprons and carry books to write down orders.

My wife and I had dinner and drinks at the Green Iguana on a Friday night. I have been there a few times before but this was my wife's first time. The weather was ideal so we were able to sit by the open end of the restaurant and enjoy the cool evening air and the Ybor City nightlife (which... More
